Huawei presented its 5G products and solutions in London on Thursday, claiming that the Chinese technology firm is supporting 41 telecom operators in their 5G commercial releases. 

Yang Chaobin, President of Huawei’s 5G Product Line, unveiled the Blade AAU antenna, and said it that it integrates the active 5G AAU and passive 2G/3G/4G antennas into one box, and that operators can use it to replace 3G/4G antennas to facilitate 5G deployment with single antenna space. Yang also shared an end-to-end slicing solution, and a series of ultra-broadband solutions designed to support a maximum bandwidth of 400 MHz. 

Last month, the U.K. decided that Huawei will supply the country with 5G equipment, but designated the Chinese tech firm a “high risk vendor,” and put a 35% cap on use of the firm’s equipment, The Guardian reported. The U.S. Department of Justice has charged Huawei with stealing trade secrets from American competitors, and has pressured the U.K. not to use Huawei as a supplier.
